This hand-coloured scanning electron micrograph was the favourite of the jury in the section "Best Scientific Image". The image shows the surface of a mosquito egg (from Culex pipiens), which generates a water repellent network by connecting microscopically small structures to trap a thin layer of air. The vitally important structures avoid immersion and enable the egg to float and aggregate with neighbouring eggs.

The latest research in human cells suggests that septins build 'cages' around bacterial pathogens, immobilizing the harmful microbes and preventing them from invading other healthy cells.

infinity-imagined: Coccolithophores are microscopic algae that first appeared 220 million years ago, and flourished during the cretaceous period. They constantly remove carbon from the atmosphere as they die and sink to the ocean floor, producing chalk.

Rare Adonis blue butterfly egg is laid only on the horseshoe vetch, a type of European perennial

Under the Microscope: "The Adonis blue butterfly is rare because it's choosy. It lays its eggs (like the one above) only on horseshoe vetch, a European perennial. What's more, it looks for patches cropped by rabbits that allow easy landing.

E.A. Seguy, a prolific artist from the 1930s, produced eleven albums of illustrations and patterns of which Papillons and Insectes that were dedicated to insect subjects. Seguy graphic technique was achieved through hand coloring prints through numerous plate stencils. I can not get enough of these colors.
